Upcoming shooter game Halo Infinite has tempted Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins to make a comeback to esports and his audience is ready for it.
The Twitch streamer is popular among Fortnite players. He made his debut in 2007 with Halo 3. He continued playing through to 2015’s divisive Halo 5: Guardians. He’s played under some of the biggest organizations like Cloud9, Evil Geniuses, Luminosity, and others.
Ninja’s fans were relentlessly reminding him about the upcoming game. On August 25, Ninja posted a meme on his Twitter account. It was about his fans who were constantly asking him if he’s going to return to his e-sports career with the launch of Halo Infinite.
My replies: Are you going to go pro in Halo Infinite?

In a conversation with Comicbook.com, he said that Halo is what connected him to his oldest brother John. The former competitive gamer states that he’s looking for a Halo game he can play with his friends.
He added that the last few Halo games haven’t been that great. And he hopes for Halo Infinite to be at least casually fun.
The streamer continued playing professionally until Halo 5, so he has a good experience with the franchise.
While Ninja hopes that 343 industries will do well with this game, other streamers like Dr. Disrespect haven’t been as generous to Halo Infinite.
As an independent streamer, Ninja has found financial success in competitive games. However, he doesn’t have plans to return to the Halo competitive scene with Halo Infinite.
The upcoming release of Halo Infinite has led to developments like OpTic Gaming’s legend Michael ‘Flamesword’ Chaves coming out of retirement ahead of the new title.
If Ninja makes a comeback, then it could draw a lot of attention to the competitive landscape.
Halo Infinite releases in December 2021, for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
